Winter Activities

Winter weather doesn’t send Coloradans indoors — we get outside and play in it! A Colorado winter vacation includes crisp winter air, fluffy snow and enough cold-weather recreation to ensure you’ve earned that end-of-the-day hot cocoa.

The most iconic Colorado winter activities are skiing and snowboarding. Home to America’s Best Skiing™, Colorado’s 25 ski and snowboard resorts offer the best of all worlds. You just have to choose which one is right for you: mega resorts with all the amenities and thousands of skiable acres or hidden gems with great snow, roomy slopes and manageable lift lines. Find out the other reasons Colorado is North America’s ultimate skiing and snowboarding destination.

Colorado Winter Vacation Ideas Beyond the Slopes

You can still find thrills on that famous snow without speeding down a mountain. Strapping on a pair of snowshoes or cross-country skis grants access to one of the most idyllic scenes Colorado has to offer. Backcountry trails lead to snow-covered valleys and peaceful stands of evergreen and aspen trees, with chirping birds and your footsteps as the only sounds you’ll hear.

Another Colorado vacation idea is a snowmobiling adventure. Combining the excitement of a high-speed ride with the beautiful scenery of a snowy alpine environment, you’ll discover why snowmobiling is so popular on Colorado’s thousands of miles of trails.

Still have time for more Colorado winter adventure before the sun sets and the fire starts crackling? Squeeze in some old-fashioned ice skating on one of many outdoor Colorado ice-skating rinks, snuggle up under a blanket for a gentle horse-drawn sleigh ride through a snowy canopy of trees, speed across a mountain meadow behind a dog sled or catch some air as you sail down a hill atop a sled or snow tube.

If you have any doubts about what there is to do in Colorado in the winter, one trip will put them to rest, as you’ll find a huge variety of winter activities in every corner of the Colorado winter wonderland. Check out the vacation ideas below and get started!
